The Witch 387

The Witch 387, completely inspired by the devastatingly horrifying 2016 film, The Witch.

New England, 1630: William and Katherine try to lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. ‘The Witch’ is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own sins, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil.

My latest art project EntertainMe, where I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media. See my deviant Art page for background info and source credits.

Nursery Song that children sing in film Witch

Early sketches for The VVitch collage

This chilling, unique horror film moved me so much I had to create an art piece for it, and soon!  Although I depended too much on existing photography stock, I think it captures the feeling of black dread. The nursery poem I didn’t get until second viewing, creepy indeed. Above are quick sketches and playing with the double V in the title.

To view more, or god forbid, purchase any of my collages, you can contact me here with a note or through email. To buy my art in a variety of prints, go to the site Curioos. If you would rather have my collages splashed onto your phone or ipad cases, tshirts, mugs or clocks (yes, clocks), view Redbubble or deviant Art [dA]

365 Collages, Extended Mix

I created this video, 365 Collages, with the YouTube Video Editor. Music by The License Lab-UNDERscore. Choice cuts from my 365 art projects.

So I have made short, collage slideshows before, using the Video Editor in YouTube. But I sort of forgot about it until now. I wanted to make a lo-fi, vintage, collage vid with those film scratches, exposure spots and light leaks, like the crappy, homemede videos of our past. I thought I could whip it out in After Effects (Photoshop in motion, right?), without really knowing After Effects (entertaining, informative tute here). Big mistake. So I am tabling After Effects, for now, and giving up on scratches, spot & leaks for now. But this extended mix, 365 Collages, is my longest, most current, and I am liking it, for now.

See my samples and song info at: http://dekdav.deviantart.com/gallery. Email me at: derekdavalos@comcast.net. I offer freelance graphic and art services, and can create a cool, personalized slideshow video, just for you,  just like this. Or a stunning, custom, collage piece. So contact me.
